New Library Features for Creators
Submitted by Xaviar Xerexes on December 10, 2005 - 02:14
FOR CREATORS the new Comixpedia site offers you the opportunity to customize your creator entry, add and edit your webcomics, put your webcomic on or off the portal top list. We feature the most recent creator news updates (from the creators themselves) on the front page of Comixpedia - once you have claimed your creator entry you will be able to change your news update however you want. If you are a creator and want to get started:
(1) Log-in and go to the Group home page - (http://altertainment.net/index.php?module=pnGroups) and apply for membership to the Creators group. When you get notice that you've been accepted you can go to the next step.
(2) You'll need to see if there is already a Creator entry for you in the library. Comixpedia staff will, to the extent time permits, add creators to the library that we cover on the site. If there is an existing creator entry for you, (after step 1 is complete) you will see a "Claim Creator Entry" link at the bottom - click that and after review by Comixpedia staff you'll receive notice that you now "own" your entry. From the bottom of your entry or from your Account page (http://altertainment.net/user.php) you''ll see a link to your Creator Dashboard. Here you can change your news update, add your webcomics to the library and put your webcomic on (or off) the toplist.
(3) If there is no Creator entry for you go to the Suggestion page and add a creator entry for yourself. Be sure to be logged into your account and be sure to check that the entry is for you. After the suggestion is reviewed by Comixpedia staff you'll receive notice. From the bottom of your new entry or from your Account page (http://altertainment.net/user.php) you''ll see a link to your Creator Dashboard. Here you can change your news update, add your webcomics to the library and put your webcomic on (or off) the toplist.
(I would recommend creators enter their webcomics through the Creator Dashboard and not through the Suggestion page.)
If you have questions about any of this, including how to use the Dashboard please post them here and I'll be sure to answer.
